: according to a cbs news poll last night, about half say romney won. but michelle, 56% say that their opinion of romney changed for the better. only 13% say their opinion of mr. obama changed for the better. in the meantime, you know what? president obama showed that he was a little thin skinned last night and, in fact, told the moderator how to do his job, but first before we see that, let's see mitt romney on the tear last night. >> i don't want to cost jobs. my priority is jobs. so what i do is i bring down the tax rates, lower deductions and exemptions, the same idea behind bowles simpson. get the rates down, to create more jobs because there is nothing better for getting us to a balanced budget than have more people working, earning more money, paying more taxes. that's by far the most effective and efficient way to get this budget balanced. >> jim, you may want to move on to another topic. >> steve: up with of the things about the president last night is for all of the many points that mitt romney had right up here, and he was able to effectively communicate them, the president had noth
review the mortar damage to the u.s. annex in benghazi as captured in a series of images taken by cbs news. based on the angles of impact and fragmentation patterns, these analysts concluded there were at least two mortar teams to score district hits, all obvious evidence of a terrorist attack. the intelligence officials then used these outside assessments to rebut internal claims from other officials that these benghazi murders were just a spontaneous mob action that grew out of control. and the very next day matt olsen, chief of the national counterterrorism center, testified publicly that the acts were an act of terror. @james rosen, fnc, i'll link you to my long form report on this subject on the fox news web site. jenna: james, thank you very much. jon: well, an october surprise rocks the 2012 campaign. president obama shocking his supporters this week, becoming really his own worst enemy in the first presidential debate. but it was only one night, so which candidate won the week? we'll take a look. jenna: also, drivers face a big surprise at the pump. gas prices jumping to sky-h
